Cello 101 The magnificent string instRument

Yo Yo Ma, a great cellist, perhaps one of the most famous in the world for his exceptional skills in cello playing. At the age of 7 he was considered a prodigy and even played for John F. Kennedy!

Have you ever wondered what it would look like inside a cello?

Before assembling the last wooden part into the cello, this is how it looks.

The cello produces its mellow tone with its huge body.

Perhaps one of the mot important parts of cello playing is reading the music. Without being able to read it, you would not know which notes to play.

This is the world's most expensive cello called the Stradivarius. This is only able to the most finest cellists and can only be used as rentals.
